Jungle spawns too late compared to minions

Supposedly jungle minions used to spawn at the same time as standard minions. This was changed in Summoner's Rift such that jungle minions would spawn once the lane minions are actually in lane. In Twisted Treeline, this relationship is now backwards: minions get there a good 10 seconds before lane minions spawned. Coupled with the fact there is no level-2 for junglers in Twisted Treeline; jungling seems to fall behind too quickly.

I think this might be intentional, to try an get junglers to play a more gank-heavy game. In summoner's rift, a jungler that fails their ganks can still catch up by jungling enough. In Twisted Treeline, a jungler lives or dies by the success of their ganks.

... that might be true to my second point, if my first and third point weren't also true. Junglers don't have guaranteed level-2 like in Summoner's Rift, and by the junlger has killed 2 camps in Twisted Treeline the lane is level 3. Junglers are innately behind. I'm all for gank-heavy; but that's why there's only 3 camps on a 1 minute respawn.

Maybe capturing the altar could provide xp? 140-200 maybe: this is halfway to level-2, combined with 1 camp a jungler would be up to speed with the lane in time for the first gank.

Junglers can be lvl 2 as altars unlock. if anything minions should come out earlier to make initial altar fight have an opportunity cost

Lane minions reach each other at 1:36, jungle mobs spawn at 1:40. If you have smite you'll actually be the first champion to have gained xp in the map.
